We got an application with similar functions but also tries to differentiate a bit giving the possibility of share the taxi with other people. joinup Taxi driver required to have the App and be discharged from the service, so their availability is variable. In single player, everything works as always, we located, choose some options and asked taxi.
However, the interesting part of joinup is to share a taxi with strangers before they carry out a similar path. It introduces the various data necessary for the collection, as the number of packages, passengers, date, time and so on, at the time the application is responsible for searching mates within 3 blocks and want to make that journey in a strip of half an hour.
